Great place to go to in puerto de la cruz! Fab restaurants and cafés and the old harbour is great both in the day and in the evening. Not far from playa Jardin if you fancy a stroll on the beach as well. Defiantly a place worth a visit if your in the area Just a quick note on that... More

a very friendly area to walk or sit out at night surrounded by good places to eat and a stones throw from the sea. Atmospheric at night

Check out the Ice cream shop at the top of the square for that late night stroll and sugar fix. Bars/restaurants are best for drinks and tapas and people watching in the evening.

A bustly square of outside restaurants, which in the evenings is drowned out with local singers and dancers. The food is always excellent and is Spanish cuisine of every type and tail. You can even try Caracoles (Snails) in a pungent home-made tomato sauce. Highly recommended. The heart of Puerto!

Nothing to dislike here. Worth wandering around at any time but comes into its own in the evening when there are musicians and often impromptu dancing by both locals and tourists

It is just the middle of the center. A lot of restaurants and stuff around it. Just a place to walk around.

A nice square with lots of restaurants, bars, and shops. We ate lunch here on two occasions and stopped another time to have drinks. A good area to relax and enjoy the Puerto de la Cruz ambience.

One of the very few places where you can enjoy a drink ( either alcohol or non alcoholic ) and just watch the world pass you by.
